Thread Craft was contracted by JL Lucas, a customer in the precision machine tool remanufacturing industry, to fabricate 4 precision ball screws crucial to their business. This order was about doing whatever necessary to help a customer with a critical deadline. A tremendous amount of machining needed to be completed in 4 weeks, including lathe work, OD grinding, milling, v-threads and of course precision internal and external thread grinding. Lead accuracy tolerances of ±.0002" per foot were held. Our internal expedite specialists managed every operation from heat treat through all testing and final inspection. These ball screw assemblies were very particular and unique, not available off the shelf and subsequently very difficult to manufacture.
This project was completed in 3 weeks at our state of the art, ISO 9001: 2008 certified facility, and shipped to the client in Waterbury, Connecticut. Thread Craft specializes in custom designing and machining of ball screw assemblies, as well as emergency repair service.
